Follow-up attacks are attacks that deal automatic damage by triggering an attack after a certain condition is met. For example, March 7th does a follow-up attack when the party member that is shielded gets attacked. This can be a great way to add on some much-needed damage. You can further improve this by adding more ways to shield your party members so it triggers the Follow-up attack constantly. There are only a few characters as of now that have follow-up attacks.
